Irrespective of all the latest gross sales problems for Honda, and its vastly minimized number of versions on offer you in the British isles, it is superior to see it hasn’t deserted the Honda-ness of its autos. The feeling that no make any difference what, this issue will run reliably for aeons.
It is no various in this frivolously fettled Honda Jazz. It is a new trim amount, with the EX Type (as opposed to simple EX, the only other trim on give these days) giving a couple external additions but not fundamentally changing the Jazz system. By the way, you can’t get the Fashion improve in the bumpered Crosstar edition.
For £25,940, you get a black pack package, with that colour running throughout the wing mirrors, system-facet mouldings, rear spoiler and roof. It also capabilities black/silver alloys, measuring 185/55 R16.
It is barely the most radical established of additions, nor has it endowed the car or truck with much far more street cred, though the price pushes it in advance of its key rival, the Toyota Yaris. An Excel trim in that auto charges £23,790.
However, with diddier wheels as conventional, the Honda emits just 84g/km when compared with the Toyota’s 98g/km, so you conserve oneself a pair of percentage factors on the BIK.
The Jazz interior stays the exact, with comprehensive connectivity by means of Apple CarPlay or Android Car and a nine-inch touchscreen. Mercifully, there is a actual physical volume button and local climate command switches, but a good deal of capabilities are also managed from the steering wheel.
The Jazz’s celebration trick – the clever folding, flipping rear seats – still options, but the boot isn’t huge. There is enough area for Granny’s procuring, or the Bichon Frise on the way again from the groomer’s, but not much else.
A dual-motor hybrid established-up continues to be, produced up of an electric powered travel motor and an integrated starter-generator. This yields 107bhp and 187lb ft, offering a -62mph time of 9.9sec, just .2sec off the Yaris.
